Ajax grew 9.2 percent between 2011 and 2016 and that means challenges for those who live there. To make it worse, most of the growth is low density, with single-family homes on separate lots. The most obvious symptom of this rapid growth is an increase in traffic congestion and accidents. In fact, Ajax ties with Halifax for the worst score in Canada in terms of the ratio of accidents per cars on the road, and it is only getting worse. This also means increased risks for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists on increasingly crowded roads. Buses can get into accidents too, so taking public transport is not all that much safer. Ajax also contains the Durham Center Shopping Complex and we all know that malls can be a location for slip and fall and similar injuries.
If something does happen, then you need an Ajax personal injury lawyer who knows about the particular challenges of the neighborhood. When you are as reliant on your car as you are in Ajax, road accidents are the most likely need, so you need a lawyer who specializes in motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents. But you may also have to deal with big city problems and the challenges of commuting into Toronto, so they need experience there too. This means you need to look at Ajax personal injury lawyers with experience and knowledge of the entire Greater Toronto area. Remember that most personal injury lawyers Ajax work on contingency, so you pay nothing unless you win and if you don’t have a chance of winning, they will be honest and tell you rather than wasting time and resources. You should contact a lawyer right away you only have two years from the date of the accident to file (the time is a little longer if a child is injured). In most cases, a settlement will be reached without actually going to court.
